Finally, the production version of the all-new sports car will be revealed at the upcoming 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.
At this year's New York Auto Show, Jaguar made possibly the biggest and most important announcement that confirmed the development of an all-new sports car, which will be christened the F-Type. And since the announcement was made, Jaguar released a series of images of the F-Type with a camouflage that mocked all of us cruelly. Then there was one more show put up at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed where the prototype version of the Jagaur F-Type was put on display and also went on its first pubic drive - still hidden under heavy camouflage.
However, now the wait to get a glimpse of Jaguar's most ambitious project yet is not so far, with the British marque's official announcement stating the production version of the Jaguar F-Type will make its global debut at the upcoming 2012 Paris Motor Show on 27 September.
The all-new aluminum two-seater sports car will be launched as a convertible with a choice of three petrol engines - a 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar's all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. All the three engines will be able to drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with the Start/Stop technology.
Adrian Hallmark, global brand director, Jaguar Cars, said, “The unveiling of the F-TYPE in Paris will be a truly significant day in Jaguar’s history as it will mark the company’s return to the sports car market, a market it originally helped to create.
“As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-TYPE will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”
